High School Basketball Coach Charged in Sex Case Quits District Jobs

DAVENPORT, Iowa (AP) — A Davenport high school teacher and coach accused of sexually abusing a student has resigned his two district posts.

The Quad-City Times says37-year-old Daniel Schneiderman's resignations were accepted by the school board on Monday night. He'd been head basketball coach and a special-education teacher at North High School.

Schneiderman is charged with sexual abuse by forcible fondling, sexual exploitation by a school employee and telephone dissemination of obscene material to a minor. He's pleaded not guilty.
